A few years ago I shot a game changing wedding in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Not only did I produce images I’m still proud of, I got to know an amazing couple. I was still very new and they trusted me with one of the biggest days of their lives. This couple was Johanna and Sam. Little did I know what this would lead to. From Jo and Sam came their friends Caroline and Eric. Yet again, another amazing couple whose wedding I adored and who I frequently run into in the craziest places (like Virginia Tech and an 80’s cover band concert! ha). That same group of friends brought me Andrea and Jimmy. Again, another couple who were my ideal client’s. The sweetest of the sweet. And last, but certainly not least, is Megan. This beautiful girl contacted me last year to photograph her wedding, bringing this crazy story of word of mouth together. A complete full circle. Each one of these girls are different from one another… and different bride’s….but, isn’t that what makes friendship a beautiful thing? They are all my ideal brides…. who I consider all friends….and one of the many reasons I seriously love this job.
I adore Megan. Bottom line. After some crazy scheduling, we finally locked down a fall date to shoot her engagement photos. I had met her fiance, Rick, briefly at Andrea and Jimmy’s wedding. Observing from the back of my camera, of course, these two were making my heart melt! Any not necessarily in that lovey-dovey way. These two were real and their interaction was genuine. With some serious wise cracks and jokes (love this about them), to dancing the night away, I just knew their engagement session would be a breeze. I was so right. Those same jokes kept me laughing the whole time and their love for each other was so evident. Ah! Enough rambling. Enjoy some of my favorites below! I can’t wait for your wedding day Rick and Megan!
That ring! Rick… yes!
I told you, ya’ll. They made my job a breeze!
Oh, Megan…. No words! So gorgeous!
Everyone… please take a moment to look at the bottom of Megan’s shoes! They match Rick’s shirt perfectly. The OCD in me is so, so proud.
Yes to these fall colors!
One of my favorites!
Congratulations, Rick and Megan!!!
